Was coming in to record a video for FTfm last week the kiss of death for Jamie MacLeod, former chief executive of Skandia Investment Group?
Mr MacLeod’s sudden departure from SIG was announced today (Thursday September 10), with Nils Bolmstrand being drafted in to take his place. There is much speculation about the change of personnel, but no official information.
According to the press release, Mr MacLeod’s parting comment was: “It has been a great journey in building a £50bn assets under management business and I really hope the company continues on this successful journey.”
Describing himself in previous interview with FTfm as “more of a business leader than a manager”, perhaps Mr MacLeod feels in need of a new challenge. It will be interesting to see where he turns up next.
